Standards in legislation
Standards in Belgian legislation
As the knowledge centre for standardisation in Belgium, NBN regularly monitors and analyses standards that are referenced in regulations.
NBN publishes an overview of all regulatory texts published in the Belgian Official Gazette that refer to standards. This overview is regularly updated.
Disclaimer: the overview only gives direct references (dated or undated) and the hyperlink refers you to the page of the text in question in the Belgian Official Gazette. The oldest text goes back to 1997.
Standards in European legislation
The European Union also uses standards to support European policies. Among them are harmonised standards. These are European standards that a European standardisation body (CEN, CENELEC or ETSI) develops at the request of the European Commission. Through harmonised standards, you can prove that your products or services meet the technical requirements of the relevant EU legislation.
